We used to have plenty of educational classes at PPFA meetings, supplier open-house events, and major trade shows. Very few of those opportunities still exist. If you want to analyze the reasons for that, go ahead, but time marches on. So, what is the future of education in picture framing? Online video education may be a good answer, but at this point, few experienced educators have such expertise. Some are willing to give it a good try, but considering the dearth of profit in framing education all along, is it worth the effort? Significant up-front cost is required and, since there is no history, there is little assurance of cost recovery, let alone profit in the effort. Do you think this should progress? If so, what are your suggestions for subject matter, marketing, and pricing? Another concern is piracy. Some years ago, when our industry's most popular educator made a ground-breaking series of videos on DVDs, it was a losing proposition due to unauthorized reproduction and sharing among framers. Many enjoyed the education, but few paid for it. So now, is online piracy a concern? In addition to video education for framers, another possibility is to produce videos for consumer education. Some of you may have seen "Why doesn't UV filtering stop fading?", which has been well received. Several framers already have had me customize it with their company logo and background images, so they can post in on their web sites and play it for their customers. In another thread, Shayla asked about my Platform Mount video. It has not yet been released, only because I have not yet found a way to be compensated for its considerable cost. One or more corporate sponsors would be great, but the value of sponsorship is not yet clear to them. Any suggestions?
